The main message displayed to the user.
Default: “Please wait. Window will close when processing in complete.”
The secondary message provided to the user.
The total amount of iterations. This is the maximum value of the progress bar. The minimum of the progress bar is always set to 0.
The current iteration of the loop. This is the current position of the progress bar.
The color of the progress bar. This value can either be a HEX (e.g.
#0062FF) or RGBA (e.g.
rgba(0, 98, 255, 1)) value strings.
The calculated time remaining, in milliseconds. This value is converted into the time remaining text below the progress bar. If the value is not provided, no time remaining text will be shown.
NOTE: As of 1/7/2019, if this value is left empty, “Calculating remaining time…” is displayed. This will be corrected to function as described.
The result of the activity.
The activity’s ID, which is used in other activities to access the activity’s output. The ID must be unique across the entire workflow and it’s subworkflows – two activities cannot have the same ID.
You might want to change the ID to shorten it. Shorter IDs make expressions more compact.
The activity’s name in Workflow Designer. The display name appears at the top of the activity on the design surface. The default display name for this activity is Feature to Spreadsheet.
You might want to change the display name to a name that describes what the activity does in the context of your workflow. Description names make workflows easier to understand and maintain.
A description of what the activity does. The description appears below the activity’s display name.
Use the description to record what the activity does in the context of the workflow. Descriptions make workflows easier to understand and maintain.
